Arriving in the afternoon the temperature was 39 degrees Celsius. We were shown to our room, the Lesmurdie Suite. It was stiflingly hot. I nearly fainted. The room had just been cleaned after the previous occupant, windows were opened to air the room. That brought in the hot air and naturally, with no aircon or fan on, the air was still.
Our Lesmurdie suite is a large room divided into a sitting room and a bedroom. In the sitting room there is also a small kitchenette area with a sofa bed. The owners have got this prepared for us as we have requested a bed each. However there is no aircon in the bedroom, only in the sitting room. There is also a ceiling fan in the sitting room but nothing in the bedroom. The pool was very cold even with the hot sun. Also it needed a good clean. Slight confusion over breakfast. On the third day, our planned breakfast for 0800, was 15 minutes late. It’s fine if you don’t have an appointment, but we did have an appointment in Perth city and it was at least half an hour’s drive into the city.
A few suggestions as follows: Complimentary mineral bottles of water could be provided, especially as the weather was extremely hot. 39 to 40 degrees C upon arrival. (we were offered coffee but it never came). Also a safety box might be useful and I don’t think there was any need to have breakfast in the room. It would have been quicker for us to have breakfast in the breakfast room whereby we don’t have to wait for it. A part-time helper could ease the amount of work especially during peak times as the owners were running around like headless chickens. Oh, there is a fish tank in the bathroom to look at and them to look at you while you are in the bathroom and sitting on the toilet!
